The former White Oaks Golf Course in Wales Township may soon become a training facility for the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 17. The 53 acre former golf course was located near the corner of Goodells and Sparling Roads. The Wales Township Planning Commission met on Tuesday at the township hall to hear plans from the IBEW for their new training facility. According to Wales Township Deputy Clerk Linda Waddy, Dean Bradley of the IBEW put on a presentation to the board, and many residents were in attendance. Waddy said that, “overall the response from residents was positive.” IBEW was granted a special land use permit by the commission. The next step for the group is to have their site plan approved. That approval is expected to take place at the township’s October 15th meeting.
